Pupil cleans up in litter contest


The winners of Hailsham Litter Clean up poster competition have been announced

Grovelands Primary school pupil Lauren Piggott’s entry was deemed the overall winner.

The 11-year-old received her prize of a Samsung Net book from Computers for Charities volunteers.

A number of prizes were also handed to runners up.

Youngsters from Hailsham schools and youth venues submitted poster entries for Hailsham’s forthcoming litter clean up week.

The week long event is scheduled to start on July 1.

Hailsham Litter Clean up week is a sponsored initiative aiming to engage all parts of the community in taking the lead and actively taking a part in clearing up litter across the town.

Town Farm Estate and Station Road Industrial Estate recently received visits from the litter squad in preparation for the main event, resulting in over 50 bags of waste collected.

Simon Rooksby chairman of Computers for Charities said: “It’s about taking a measure of responsibility for our actions and where we live.

“Hence we are appealing to all local schools, Individuals, Clubs & Voluntary associations, Church groups, businesses to call or email now; and pledge an hour or more over Litter Clean Up week and help make a difference.”

Computers for Charities is a charitable organisation established in 1994 to providing refurbished computer equipment and respond to requests for computer related help.
